Bp. Stephen Dami Mamza of Yola, Nigeria wrote
“The 110 school girls abducted by Boko Haram here in Nigeria about one month ago were all returned except for five of them who died and one of them, Lea Sharibu who happens to be a Christian. They refused to release Lea because she refused to denounce Christianity for Islam. Please pray for her immediate release.”
We do can better than just pray.
There is a project to have 100 Masses said for the intention of the safe release of Lea Sharibu.
Priests are needed to say these Masses.
Lay people are needed to get their priests to say these Masses.
From the site that has been set up:
We would like to get 100 Masses offered for her rescue before Easter.
If you are a priest, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to pledge one or more Masses for the rescue of this fearless Catholic girl who will not deny Jesus Christ. Nothing is more powerful for her rescue that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered 100 or even 1000 times for her. (In the email, please include the date(s) that Holy Mass will be offered.)
If you are a layman or lay woman, please email us at email@example.com to pledge fasting or Rosaries or Adoration time or Bible reading time for the rescue of this fearless Christian captive girl. Miss Sharibu values the truth of the Gospel and the Church more than her own life. We want her rescued and re-united with her family . We very much believe God will hear our prayers.
We want her returned by Easter and we will send this spiritual bouquet to her bishop on Easter Week.
